Theatregoers will set sail aboard the privately chartered luxury vessel Le Soléal.

Playbill columnist Seth Rudetsky will return as master of ceremonies and music director, a position he has held since Broadway on the High Seas' inaugural voyage in 2011. Broadway on the High Seas founding partner Judy Perl and her eponymous Judy Perl Worldwide Travel will again serve as exclusive Playbill Travel program provider, coordinating all travel arrangements for the 264 guests and talent aboard the ship.
The itinerary commences on the ground in Ho Chi Minh (formerly Saigon) for a two-night stay in a luxury hotel before taking off on our private luxury cruise ship making stops in tropical coastal towns and beach resorts in Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia. The cruise disembarks in Singapore, where travelers can also extend their stay. "We opened up bookings to our past passengers less than a month ago, and we are already over 50% sold-out," said Playbill President and CEO Philip Birsh in a statement. "This speaks to the outstanding reputation Playbill Travel has acquired over our past five vacations. Most of our travelers are repeat customers — many enjoying three or more trips. Playbill Travelers have come to recognize the exceptional experience they have while in our care and the once-in-a-lifetime journey they have with our singular talent, award-winning accommodations, and exemplary staff."
Previous performers on Broadway By The Sea have included Patti LuPone, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Christine Ebersole, Andrea Martin, Ana Gasteyer, Alice Ripley, Lillias White, Lewis Black, Sherie Rene Scott, Marin Mazzie and Jason Danieley.
